Much to my surprise I have won the James White Award for science fiction writing in Scotland, so look out for my story The Morrigan in a future issue of Interzone.

I have nice gay-themed sonnet The Goblin in this month’s British Fantasy Award Journal too, but only members get to read that. Give me a shout if you want to read it.

Some Scottish ceilidh tunes, played on electric guitar.

I play a set like this if I’m asked to do ceilidhs.  It’s two guitars. bass and drums, no traditional instruments.  I recorded these a few years ago and forgot about them.

Links, publications etc.

I thought I should list the places where you can read my fiction or watch me play, so here’s a little list of links.  Simply googling my name would probably bring them all up, and more.
